Scenes From the Amtgard LARP Society

Keep on the Borderlands, sponsored by the Kingdoms of Rising Winds and Tal Dagore, strives to be the premiere event held by Amtgard, a not-for-profit foam fighting and LARP (Live Action Role Play) society. From September 19-22, 2013, this event challenged Amtgarders to come and test their skills in the Hammer of God Cup, the Inter-Kingdom Arts and Science tournament, a night quest, and two battle games all themed around the original module of this name written by Gary Gygax, cofounder of Dungeons and Dragons.

The event was held at Wolf Creek State Park in Windsor Illinois.

This was a great event, we had over 500 people attending from all across the country. It was wonderful meeting and talking with everyone, including Theo with his amazing pictures. If you are interested in learning more about Amtgard in general, you should check out Amtgard.com, or just show up at Wilmore park, as Jake suggests. We always have extra equipment for people to try it out.

Anyone interested in playing Amtgard (which will always be free to everyone) in the St Louis area, come check out the Barony of Jupiter's Stones at Wilmore Park in Afton, Sundays at 1 near the dog park.
